Goes further than most similar textbooks by considering SIR techniques that are not found typically in multivariate textbooks
Data sets discussed in the book can be downloaded and analyzed by every statistical package
Contains hundreds of solved exercises
The authors present tools and concepts of multivariate data analysis by means of exercises and their solutions. The first part is devoted to graphical techniques. The second part deals with multivariate random variables and presents the derivation of estimators and tests for various practical situations. The last part introduces a wide variety of exercises in applied multivariate data analysis. The book demonstrates the application of simple calculus and basic multivariate methods in real life situations. It contains altogether 234 solved exercises which can assist a university teacher in setting up a modern multivariate analysis course. All computer-based exercises are available in the R or XploRe languages. The corresponding libraries are downloadable from the Springer link web pages and from the author’s home pages.
